Twilight Heart Necklace from Bittersweet Ridge Jewelry

This romantic handmade heart necklace is all about twilight; that part of time which is not day, yet is not yet night.  A love poem come to life in a piece of jewelry, this necklace begins with an amazing natural agate gemstone heart pendant.  Amazing striations of periwinkle blue, pale violet, pale smokey browns.  Almost like a mood ring, the colors change according to the light and background of the stone.

The necklace chain was created by hand wire wrapping silver jeweler's wire with brilliantly faceted smoky crystal rondelles and natural blue lace agate gemstone beads.  A one of a kind artisan necklace from Bittersweet Ridge Jewelry.  Perfect for your beloved Valentine any time of year.

Vintage Cameo Wedding Gift Anklet for a Bride

I recently created a custom ankle bracelet for a bride to wear at her wedding.  Working with one of three aunts, the goal:  an ankle bracelet that represented something old, something new, and something blue.  

The finished anklet included:
  • a vintage cameo in ivory with two roses in full bloom
  • Citrine - a gemstone representing joy - to coordinate with the wedding and engagement rings
  • four brilliantly faceted blue topaz colored crystal rondelles to represent the four aunts of the bride
  • lots of natural mother of pearl beads.
What a pleasure it was working with Patty to create a very special wedding gift which is sure to evoke joyful memories.
